Any black duck fans?

I shoot one every now and again and finally decided to get one mounted. Here he is, turned out pretty snazzy.

I am a fan...love the pose you chose...I plan on getting a big drake done soon, as well. I have a buddy that had one done too, and his bill was bright yellow like yours...is that just the lighting, or is it really that bright? Was it that bright when you shot it? The pic above (not the best) is a drake and a hen black...the hen's bill is really olive, and the drake's is a darker yellow/light olive. Just wondering....I like the way he is standing on the driftwood out from the wall...

I think the flash is casting added brightness to the beak making it a little louder than it really is. However I dont think it is 100% accurate as far as the duck should be. Either way, Im pleased with it.
